Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan — Just Some Stuff
This is a small sample of MaizeMan’s post on the message board.
While looking forward to the Iowa game, just thought I would give you some thoughts on existing frosh.
Going into 2014, assuming UM really attempts to upgrade their athletic talent, some players to look for this spring.1) Reon Dawson
With our glut as CB and Peppers coming to UM, look for Dawson to maybe be a candidate to move to safety. This kids is really raw and still growing, but when it comes to size and athletic talent he has a very high ceiling, loaded with potential. He reminds me of a smaller Furman, but a better football player. He has been playing CB and he brings the size Mattison likes at that position, but with Stribling and Lewis already there and Countess and Taylor returning and now Peppers entering the picture our athletic depth at safety besides Thomas just is not where it should be. Dawson is a kid who could be on the 2-deep next year.
3) David Dawson
Going to admit, when I watch spring practices next year, Dawson is the first kid I check out. He reminds a lot of Schilling at least the Schilling I was projecting until he was asked to lose so much weight. But the same type of player very good feet, but powerful just overall a talented OL. Can he play OT?==I think he can, but if UM wants to play its most talented players on OL cant see Dawson being any lower than #6 and pushing for starting position,
injuries, injuries, injuries the guy just cannot stay healthy. But this is a big kid. and a kid who I think by next fall will completely change his body. He has a ton of room to get stronger and he may be the player which allows whoever our OC is to implement a real H-back type of plays. This kid is an underrated player.
Here is the most positive thing I can say about UM football, the class of 2013 is I think the most athletic class I have seen at UM in a long time. The 5 listed about are athletes and I did not mention players like Poggi, Hurst, Taco, Gedeon, green, Smith, could go on.
The point is, this yrs team just lacks overall speed and athleticism especially on offense, but in keys areas on defense. the class coming up not sure how good of football players they will end up being—but UM football will be bigger and faster starting next year.
